Drug provocation testing should be performed before safely prescribing an analgesic for patients that are hypersensitive to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Whether or not the direct histamine releasing effect of codeine renders it useful in NSAID-hypersensitive patients is unknown. This study aimed to determine if codeine could be recommended as a safe treatment option for NSAID-hypersensitive patients without the need for oral drug provocation testing.

Serum levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1β) in control rats were remained stable during the aging process, whereas serum IL-6 in MS rats were significantly increased at 12 and 18 months. The levels of COX isoenzyme and PLA2 in aortas from control rats increased with the aging, whereas those in aortas from MS rats were irregularly increased with the highest levels at 6 months. Pretreatment with acetylsalicylic acid (a COX-1 preferential inhibitor), indomethacin (a non-selective COX inhibitor) or meloxicam (a COX-2 preferential inhibitor) decreased NE-induced contractions of aortic rings from MS rats at all the ages, with meloxicam being the most potent. Acetylsalicylic acid also significantly reduced the maximum responses of ACh-induced vasorelaxation of aortic rings from MS rats, but indomethacin and meloxicam had no effect.

At 8 weeks after surgery, gastroduodenal reflux induced esophageal erosions and ulcer formation as well as marked thickening of the esophageal wall. Histological study showed an increase of thickness of the esophageal mucosa, hyperplasia of the epidermis and basal cells, ulcer formation, and marked infiltration of inflammatory cells. The macroscopic ulcer score and histological ulcer length were significantly reduced by treatment with rabeprazole or CMM but not by nizatidine or ecabet sodium, compared with each control. Rabeprazole, nizatidine, or ecabet sodium did not affect the severity of mucosal hyperplastic scores or histological parameters in esophagitis. In contrast, the CMM group showed a significant decrease in the mucosal hyperplastic and inflammatory scores. The enhanced expression of CINC-1, COX-2, and iNOS mRNA in the control group was also markedly inhibited in the CMM-treated group. ONO-1714 or meloxicam treatment significantly reduced the macroscopic scores of ulcer and hyperplasia. The trypsin activity in the esophageal lumen was significantly increased in the control diet group, and this increase was significantly inhibited in the CMM-treated group. The expression of PAR-1 and -2 mRNA was confirmed in rat esophageal epithelium.

It has been reported that oxidized low density lipoprotein (Ox-LDL) can activate both peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha (PPARalpha) and PPARgamma. However, the detailed mechanisms of Ox-LDL-induced PPARalpha and PPARgamma activation are not fully understood. In the present study, we investigated the effect of Ox-LDL on PPARalpha and PPARgamma activation in macrophages. Ox-LDL, but not LDL, induced PPARalpha and PPARgamma activation in a dose-dependent manner. Ox-LDL transiently induced cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) mRNA and protein expression, and COX-2 specific inhibition by NS-398 or meloxicam or small interference RNA of COX-2 suppressed Ox-LDL-induced PPARalpha and PPARgamma activation. Ox-LDL induced phosphorylation of ERK1/2 and p38 MAPK, and ERK1/2 specific inhibition abrogated Ox-LDL-induced COX-2 expression and PPARalpha and PPARgamma activation, whereas p38 MAPK-specific inhibition had no effect. Ox-LDL decreased the amounts of intracellular long chain fatty acids, such as arachidonic, linoleic, oleic, and docosahexaenoic acids. On the other hand, Ox-LDL increased intracellular 15-deoxy-Delta(12,14)-prostaglandin J(2) (15d-PGJ(2)) level through ERK1/2-dependent overexpression of COX-2. Moreover, 15d-PGJ(2) induced both PPARalpha and PPARgamma activation. Furthermore, COX-2 and 15d-PGJ(2) expression and PPAR activity were increased in atherosclerotic lesions of apoE-deficient mice. Finally, we investigated the involvement of PPARalpha and PPARgamma on Ox-LDL-induced mRNA expression of ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1. Interestingly, specific inhibition of PPARalpha and PPARgamma suppressed Ox-LDL-induced ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 mRNA expression and enhanced Ox-LDL-induced monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 mRNA expression. In conclusion, Ox-LDL-induced increase in 15d-PGJ(2) level through ERK1/2-dependent COX-2 expression is one of the mechanisms of PPARalpha and PPARgamma activation in macrophages. These effects of Ox-LDL may control excess atherosclerotic progression.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) plays an important role during angiogenesis and bone repair. This study investigated whether the use of meloxicam alters bone repair via downregulation of VEGF and receptor expression.

A total of 48 Wistar rats were divided into 4 groups according to their treatment, which was started 1 day after inoculation of all rats with Escherichia coli (ATCC 25 922, 10(10) cfu/mL). Group 1 received only antibiotic treatment with ceftriaxone (50 mg/kg, IM). Groups 2 and 3 received L-carnitine (500 mg/kg, IM) and meloxicam (3 mg/kg, IM) in addition to conventional treatment, respectively. Group 4 received combination therapy (L-carnitine and meloxicam) in addition to the first group. Rats were killed 3 and 7 days after E. coli inoculation and underwent nephrectomy. Histologic determination of tubular atrophy, acute and chronic inflammation, interstitial fibrosis and biochemical determination of superoxide dismutase and catalase activity, total thiol content, total antioxidant capacity, and malondialdehyde and protein hydroperoxide levels were measured.

In comparison with that in HC, significantly increased percentages of CXCR5+CD4+, CXCR5+CD4+PD-1+, and CXCR5+CD4+IL-21+, but not CXCR5+CD4+ICOS+ and PD-1+ICOS+CXCR5+CD4+ T cells, and elevated concentrations of serum IL-21 were detected in patients with AS (p = 0.001, p = 0.012, p < 0.001, p = 0.233, p = 0.216, p < 0.001, respectively). Treatment with meloxicam, thalidomide, and etanercept for 1 month significantly reduced percentages of IL-21+CXCR5+CD4+ T cells and concentrations of serum IL-21 (p < 0.001, p < 0.001, respectively), accompanied by significantly minimized disease activity in drug responders, but not in the drug nonresponders. Further, percentages of IL-21+CXCR5+CD4+ T cells were positively correlated with BASDAI in patients (r = 0.6, p = 0.0012) and in the drug-responders 1 month after treatment (r = 0.68, p = 0.005), while the percentages of PD-1+CXCR5+CD4+ T cells were negatively correlated with BASDAI (r = -0.58, p = 0.0018).
Two studies were investigated retrospectively for model development and model evaluation. Twenty-one healthy subjects received a single 6-hour infusion of tesofensine (0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2 mg) in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, single rising-dose study. Twelve healthy subjects were treated in a randomized, crossover study with meloxicam 30 mg as a single dose given intravenously (bolus) either alone or concomitantly with cholestyramine. The EHC model was developed based on data from the tesofensine study, where EHC is suspected. Model evaluation was performed with data from the meloxicam trial. Modelling and simulation analyses were performed using the software programs NONMEM, SAS and Berkeley Madonna.

In order to obtain and then test pharmocologically any possible conformers of the new feasible analgesic N-benzyl-4-hydroxy-1-methyl-2,2-dioxo-1H-2λ⁶,1-benzothiazine-3-carboxamide, its 4-O-sodium salt was synthesized using two methods. X-ray diffraction study made possible to determine that, depending on the chosen synthesis conditions, the above-mentioned compound forms either monosolvate with methanol or monohydrate, where organic anion exists in the form of three different conformers. Pharmacological testing of the two known pseudo-enantiomeric forms of the original N-benzylamide and of the two solvates of its sodium salt was performed simultaneously under the same conditions and in equimolar doses. Comparison of the results obtained while studying the peculiarities of the synthesized compounds spatial structure and biological properties revealed an important structure-action relationship. In particular, it was shown that the intensity of analgesic effect of different conformational isomers of N-benzyl-4-hydroxy-1-methyl-2,2-dioxo-1H-2λ⁶,1-benzothiazine-3-carboxamide may change considerably: while low active conformers are comparable with piroxicam, highly active conformers are more than twice as effective as meloxicam.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of meloxicam (MEL) on selected immune parameters of bovine CD25(high)CD4+, CD25(low)CD4+, and CD25-CD4+ cells. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) collected from 12-month-old heifers were treated with MEL at a concentration corresponding to the serum level of this medication following administration at the recommended dose (MEL 5 × 10(⁻6) M) and at a concentration 10 times lower (MEL 5 × 10(⁻7) M). After 12 and 24 h of incubation with the drug, the percentage of CD25(high)CD4+ cells decreased; however, this disturbance was quickly reversed. Furthermore, the absolute number of CD25(high)CD4+ cells in the PBMC populations treated with MEL 5 × 10(⁻6) M for 48 and 168 h was increased. Prolonged (168 h) exposure to the drug increased the percentage of Foxp3+ cells in the CD25(high)CD4+ cell subpopulation. The higher dose of MEL was found to significantly increase the percentage of IFN-γ+ cells among the CD25-CD4+ cells. These results indicated that MEL does not exert an immunosuppressive effect by depleting CD4+ cells and suppression of IFN-γ+ production by these cells. Furthermore, IL-10 and TGF-β production was not changed following exposure to MEL.

This paper introduces some chemometric methods, i.e., self-modeling curve resolution (SMCR), multivariate curve resolution-alternating least squares (MCR-ALS) and parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC and PARAFAC2), which are used to evaluate in vitro dissolution testing data detected by a UV-vis spectrophotometer on meloxicam-mannitol binary systems. These systems were chosen because of their relative simplicity to apply as part of the validation process illustrating the effectiveness of the developed and applied chemometric method. The paper illustrates the failure of PARAFAC methods used before for pharmaceutical data evaluations as well, and we suggest application of the feasible band form given by SMCR as a more general procedure. Steps to improve the dissolution behavior of drugs have become among the most interesting aspects of pharmaceutical technology, and our results show that a larger particle size of meloxicam is advantageous for dissolution. Instead of the use of only one characteristic wavelength, appropriate chemometric methods can furnish more information from dissolution testing data, i.e., the individual dissolution rate profiles and the individual spectra for all the components can be obtained without resorting to any separation techniques such as HPLC.

Chitosan has been used to cross-link poly(acrylic acid) to give three pH-sensitive hydrogels designed to control the release of the drugs amoxicillin and meloxicam. The extent of cross-linking and solution pH was found to dominate the swelling behavior of these hydrogels as shown by scanning electron microscopy and swelling time dependencies. The rates of release of amoxicillin and meloxicam from the loaded hydrogels increased with increase in pH consistent with the extent of hydrogen bonding between hydrogel components and between the hydrogel and the drugs being important determinants of release rate. Both the Korsemeyer-Peppas and Weibull models fitted release data consistent with drug release occurred through a combination of drug diffusion and hydrogel relaxation processes. These hydrogels appear to provide an ideal basis for controlled drug delivery systems.

One hundred twenty male Wistar rats had their maxillary right incisor extracted. Animals were divided into a control group (CG; n = 60) and a meloxicam-treated group (TG; n = 60) that received either a single daily intraperitoneal injection of 0.9% NaCl or meloxicam 3 mg/kg, respectively, for 7 consecutive days. Alveolar bone repair was evaluated histomorphometrically, whereas VEGF and its receptors were analyzed by immunohistochemistry and quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). Data were submitted to two-way analysis of variance and Tukey post hoc test with P < 0.05.
The study aims to investigate the impact of flexosomes (FLs) on transdermal delivery of meloxicam (MLX). FLs are composed of phospholipid, Tween 80, and ethanol which were prepared by film hydration method. The prepared FLs were characterized for particle size, zeta potential, and entrapment efficiency (EE). Ex vivo skin penetration studies were perfomed, and the best formulation was further evaluated using in vivo antiinflammatory activity test. FLs were in nano-size scale carring negative charge and observed high EE% and enhanced skin penetration of MLX compared to conventional liposomes (CLs). The best formula was FL4 which was composedof phospholipid (10%), Tween 80 (1.5%), and ethanol (40%). FL4 showed 143.4 nm vesicle size, 84% EE, and 31-fold ex vivo permeation enhancement through skin compared to CLs. The antiinflammatory activity of FL4 gel showed significant increase compared to control. This study observed the effectiveness of using FLs as carriers for transdermal delivery of MLX.

Percentages of peripheral blood inducible costimulator (ICOS)+, programmed death 1 (PD-1)+, and interleukin 21 (IL-21)+ CXCR5+CD4+ T cells in 26 patients with AS and 12 healthy controls (HC) were examined by flow cytometry, and the disease activity of individual patients was measured by Bath AS Disease Activity Index (BASDAI). The concentrations of serum IL-21, IgG, IgA, IgM, and C-reactive protein (CRP) were examined and the values of erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) were measured. The potential association among these measures was analyzed.
The neurological examination scores mildly increased in trauma groups 48 hours after the induction of trauma. Meloxicam treatment improved the altered neurological status. The trauma caused a significant increase in brain water content that was partially reversed by meloxicam. Meloxicam also reduced the EB extravasation indicating the preservation of the BBB integrity. Meloxicam treatment also significantly reduced the increase in malondialdehyde and myeloperoxidase levels and restored glutathione content of the brains that had been significantly increased after trauma.

The pre-emptive use of analgesics for the reduction of pain induced by the castration of suckling piglets was investigated by measuring cortisol before as well as 30 min (minutes), 1 h (hour), 4 h and 24 h after castration/handling and by post surgical behaviour (0-60 min and 180-240 min after castration/handling). 245 male, 4 to 6 days old piglets with a good general condition were divided into twelve groups. The drugs meloxicam, flunixin, metamizole or carprofen, respectively, or saline solution in control piglets were administered 15 to 30 min before manipulation. All tested non-opioid analgesics reduced the rise of the cortisol concentration after castration. Piglets receiving meloxicam and flunixin had significantly lower values 30 min, 1 h and 4 h after castration than the control group, and already after 1 h they did not differ significantly from the corresponding handling groups. The frequency of occurrence of tail wagging, drooping the tail and changing the position was explicitly reduced when meloxicam and flunixin were injected before castration. The effect of flunixin was most clear. Results indicate that non-opioid analgesics, especially efficient anti-inflammatory drugs like meloxicam and flunixin, are capable of reducing castration-induced pain in piglets.

The pathogenesis of cyclophosphamide-induced hemorrhagic cystitis (CP-HC) is complex, involving the im- pact of many systemically and locally released agents on autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity, that affects bladder functioning. The purpose of our study was to provide an indirect evaluation of ANS functional status in experimental CP-HC model, involving prostaglandin synthesis block resulting from administration of cyclooxygenase inhibitors. The ANS activity was estimated through the spectral analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) in CP-HC rats divided into three study groups: 1-control, 2-treated with meloxicam (MLX) that preferentially blocks COX-2, and 3-treated with piroxicam (PRX) that inhibits COX1 and 2 activity. In animals treated either with MLX or PRX, the percent distribution of the spectrum in relation to components of very low (VLF) and low (LF) frequency was not different from the control group. PRX-treated group displayed nearly two times lower percent share of the high frequency (HF) component compared to the control. Moreover, an increase of the normalized LF (nLF) value with simultaneous reduction of the normalized HF (nHF) value were noted in PRX-treated rat with no change of these parameters for MLX-treated rats. The HRV analysis in CP-HC rats receiving PRX, indicated a functional reorganization manifested by reduced parasym- pathetic activity and increased sympathetic tonus. A partial prostaglandin synthesis block caused by COX-2 inhibitor (meloxicam) caused no significant changes of evaluated HRV parameters compared to the control. Assessing functional changes of the ANS caused by prostaglandin synthesis block it should be stated that prostaglandins synthesized by the constitutive COX-1 isoform seem to maintain the parasympathetic activity, which may be associated with the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway and resolution of inflammation in course of cyclophosphamide-induced cystitis.

The maximum plasma detomidine concentration after GEL was 2.1 ± 1.2 ng mL(-1) (mean ±SD) and the time of maximum concentration was 66.0 ± 36.9 minutes. The bioavailability of detomidine was approximately 34% with GEL. Similar sedation scores were reached in both groups after administration of detomidine, but maximal sedation was reached earlier in the IV group (10 minutes) than in the GEL group (40 minutes). HR was lower after IV than GEL from 5 to 10 minutes after administration. All animals were adequately sedated, and we were able to administer local anaesthetic without resistance to all of the calves before disbudding.

Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), an enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of prostaglandins, is made inducible by various stimuli such as inflammation. Although COX-2 is commonly overexpressed in a variety of premalignant and malignant conditions including oral leukoplakia and squamous cell carcinoma, relatively little research has compared the effects of various COX-2 inhibitors (celecoxib, NS-398, nimesulide and meloxicam). Therefore, we investigated the effects of four different selective COX-2 inhibitors on the growth of KB cells, derived from oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and its mechanisms. Celecoxib and NS-398 strongly suppressed the proliferation of KB cells at 10-100 microM, whereas nimesulide and meloxicam are less potent proliferation inhibitors. Only celecoxib induced apoptosis of the KB cells, as detected on the basis of DNA fragmentation, caspase-3/7 activation and cleaved poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) fragmentation. All four COX-2 inhibitors increased COX-2 protein expression but suppressed prostaglandin (PG) E2 production in the KB cells, suggesting that the pro-apoptotic effect of celecoxib was unrelated to the inhibition of COX-2. Mechanistically, a high level of p53 protein and a low level of multidrug-resistant protein 1 (MRP1) and breast cancer resistant protein (BCRP) mRNA in KB cells with celecoxib may explain the differential effect of these selective COX-2 inhibitors in KB cells. Taken together, celecoxib is a good therapeutic candidate for treating OSCC through the suppression of cell proliferation and the induction of apoptosis in a COX-2 independent manner.
